Thank you Luca - I did see that the -nvidia libs are being dropped on the
-8 changelog but I had no idea what that actually meant until I read your

I was assuming these were modified library versions by Nvidia with
enhancements to make the most out of the hardware but I guess their removal
goes to show they're equivalent in any way. In that sense, my system should
be fine right now, with maybe just a little headache to make sure all
-nvidia packages are replaced properly in the next update.

Thanks again for the extra information!
